Yellowstone National Park authorities have "thrown the (cook)book" at three park visitors who were caught trying to cook two whole chickens by putting them in a burlap bag and immersing it in one of the park's hot springs. The trio, all men of age 41 and upwards--two from Idaho and one from Utah--were hit with two years of banishment from Yellowstone National Park, plus fines that range from $500 to $1200. I guess the "master chef" got hit with the $1200 fine, and the two apprentices, just $500. But I don't really know.

Park authorities said it is not only expressly forbidden, but seriously dangerous, considering that the water in the park's hot springs can exceed 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

For the record, from the Paper of Record...

So, park patrons are prohibited from placing poultry in the pools?

Banished for boiling barnyard birds!

The geezers are grounded for grilling in the geysers.

Park authorities are playing loose with their facts. A hot spring near the surface would be 'only' 212F, the normal boiling point of water at 1 atmosphere. Now deep underground where the water is trapped under high pressure it can hit 400F or more (theoretically under to 700F.)

Before the government got in involved, most people werent stupid enough to get close to it,,,

Its been there for hundreds of thousands of years, the local natives lived with it.

And some government ******* thinks he is going to regulate it.

Probably not.

It's a "slippery slope" kind of situation.

Not a slope of wet or lichen-covered rocks that are slippery and that could cause someone who only wants to be close to the water in the hot spring to fall all the way into the water in the hot spring.

Not a literal slippery slope like that, but a virtual slippery slope.

Sure, the park rangers could just look the other way as the "poulet" trio cooked their chickens in the hot spring. "Coq au vent," as williegoat so acutely observed.

But what's going to happen with the next group of visitors that come comes along? What if they want to prepare their chicken Sous Vide? What if they want Chicken Under Granite, Tuscan-style? Or Chicken Kiev? What about Nashville Hot or Volcano Chicken?

If the park rangers don't put a stop to this--well, thank goodness they have--but otherwise, it's just going to escalate. People who come to the park to see the hot springs ecosystem in its natural state will be SOL. They might as well go to some big upscale restaurant in Denver or Salt Lake City with a glass-fronted kitchen for gawkers, because that's all they're going to see. Cooks and cooking. President Grant would be rolling over in his grave.

Exactly my thought.

If enough people fell in and got par-boiled, word would get out, and (go figure) people would stop. Maybe.
Or at least the worst of them wouldn't be around any more, to keep doing it.

Stupid should hurt.
